The designer has a great video tutorial for the process in her blog. The burlap canvases that she uses are from Tim Holtz, and can be found at most craft stores. Here's a link to an online store, so you can see what they look like: burlap canvas. Serendipitously, not long after watching the tutorial I came across these canvas panels at my local Target:
These are 12" x 12", and a nice white finish, as I wasn't a big fan of the burlap. When I finally finish the model, I've decided that I'm going to make a collage in remembrance of my trip to Italy this past May. Here is a picture of some of the goodies I stitched and received/bought during the trip:
If I have room, I'd love to add a picture from my trip as well; I'm really excited about this project!
In my last post I had a small contest, which was won by Dima; you can see what her prize was in her blog.
I'll leave you with a new picture of my Gracie acting as chart holder for me:
Hope everyone has a great stitchy weekend!
